I don't care how cheap they make it, I STILL will never touch it.

You are right! You should definitely stay away from it! Handling that much awesomeness isn't for everyone. ;)

OMG MSFT. GET A HINT. Look at where Apple has priced their iPad tablets in relation to their laptops and desktops. Surface Pro should be 399.99 MAX because I can get a decent PC laptop (i.e. screen, storage, etc.) for 849.99 and up.

This is annoying.
let's compare, shall we?

The MBA (11 inch) ships with a 1.3GHz i5 CPU, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 1366x768 display = $999

Surface pro(1) ships with a 1.7Ghz i5 CPU, 64GB SSD, 4GB RAM, 10 inch 1080p touch display (with Wacom tech) = $699

Both include a full desktop OS.

How are you comparing this to the iPad?

Yeah, but not upgradable like a PC.

Still too expensive. Throw in the keyboard and you're way over a much better laptop at that price.

Nice try, MS. Still overpriced. If it were $399, I would bite.

Yeah, a fire sale like HP did would be a lot more appropriate ($199 anyone?) After all, MS already took a $900 million write off on the tablets.
